One of the ways Eastern Health supports your safety is through accreditation. Accreditation helps us to meet national standards of safety and quality.
We participate in Accreditation Canada’s Qmentum Program which includes:
- carefully reviewing national standards to ensure we are meeting quality and safety requirements;
- seeking client and family input and feedback;
- identifying and acting on areas for improvement; and
- connecting with our staff and physicians to help create a better workplace and a strong culture of safety.
We are always working towards improving our services, as we want you to receive the safest and highest quality of care we can provide.
Eastern Health works with Accreditation Canada to prepare for regular reviews of our services, our policies and procedures, our facilities, and our leadership. The most recent on-site survey visit was in September 2017.
Eastern Health received the highest possible ranking from Accreditation Canada: Accredited with Exemplary Standing.
We are very proud of this achievement, and we continue to work with you to ensure that we meet or exceed our accreditation standards when we begin our next accreditation cycle.
Beginning in Fall, 2021, Eastern Health will participate in a sequential survey model with Accreditation Canada, meaning that surveyors will be visiting us every year to assess the work we do.
